    windows 10


    I did the upgrade to windows 10 in July.
    Now a about a month ago, I my sister said for me to download and scan
    my computer for viruses and when I did the scan, completed all.
    The next day I clicked on windows defender and the message said
    it is not monitoring your computer. How do I get it back. I had it in the task bar
    I tried to do it but message said error 5077?
    I scanned with eset nod32 antivirus.

    I scanned with eset nod32 antivirus
    installing Eset node32 would have disable defender ,
    you should only run one antivirus at a time ,so if you install an antivirus program windows disables the built in Windows Defender

    I have been using malware bytes for quite some time now. Then I got this new computer about a year and a half and it had windows defender, but I like the Microsoft security essentials much better.

    actually, malware and windows defender are different. I use both of them

    He meant that Windows Defender is the new version of Microsoft Security Essentials which is no longer available except for Vista and 7.
